Integrity, Transparency, Accountability
These simple but indispensable values guide The Bloom Group’s daily work, with the mission to make life better for those who are most vulnerable. We adhere to best practices around service delivery, fiscal responsibility and performance measurement. We honor our responsibility to every individual whom we serve, every donor who invests in our community and every partner who helps broaden the impact of our work.
Our Core Values
We are a professional, well managed organization. We nurture a culture of accountability, respect and learning throughout our organization.
We do not accept the status quo. We are dedicated to developing innovative, long-term, sustainable services that facilitate positive change in our community.
We do everything we can to remove barriers to service. We are non-judgemental: we meet people wherever they are in their lives and treat them with respect and dignity.
We seek opportunities to collaborate. We are committed to partnering with other organizations to leverage the benefits to the community.
We have a 50-year history of dedicated service in Vancouver. The compassion, generosity and determination of our founder, May Gutteridge, continue to inspire our work.
